Does the man you love assume the right to control how you live and behave? Have you given up important activities or people to keep him happy? Is he extremely jealous and possessive? Does he switch from charm to anger without warning? Does he belittle your opinions, your feelings, or your accomplishments? Does he withdraw love, money, approval, or sex to punish you? Does he blame you for everything that goes wrong in the relationship? Do you find yourself "walking on eggshells" and apologizing all the time? If the questions here reveal a familiar pattern, you may be in love with a misogynist -- a man who loves you, yet causes you tremendous pain because he acts as if he hates you. In this superb self-help guide, Dr. Susan Forward draws on case histories and the voices of men ad women trapped in these relationships to help you understand you man's destructive pattern, the part you play in it, how to break the pattern, heal the hurt, regain your self-respect, and either rebuild your relationship or find the courage to love a truly loving man. "Very important and much needed...This how-to book could be a lifesaver." -- Abigail Van Buren, "Dear Abby" "A "must read" for any woman who has ever been in a destructive relationship." -- Sonya Friedman, Ph.D., author of "Smart Cookies Don't Crumble"

    Comments about Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them:

    Reading this will open your eyes and raise your understanding of relationships of all types. Unfortunately, it's a poor title because the author explains much about all of the relationships humans get involved in.
    The examples provide understanding of things we have usually too long overlooked. Things that we accept as something there is nothing to be done about, yet there is, we can say, "No, I will be treated with respect," and walk away from even the simplest of abusive situations.
    This book has the ability to change your life, so be prepared to take off the rose coloured glasses that the need to hold onto a relationship often has one wearing.
